A real mountain cabin experience - views, privacy, and all the amenities you need!

My family stayed at this lovely cabin for 4 days between Christmas and New Year's. We LOVED it! I recommend it to anyone! It is spacious and open yet cozy, and very clean, and well-maintained. You feel right at home (better than home, actually!). We were even delighted to have snow on the ground for that extra touch of a mountain cabin getaway. Wildlife was everywhere and there was plenty of birdwatching while sitting on the couch relaxing.

The views were phenomenal. Mountains, lake, and that real cabin feel. It is down a private road on the cove, and the peace and quiet were just what we needed.

The amenities were top-notch! They were more than we could have imagined! A FULL kitchen with everything you need - cookware, dishes, appliances - everything!

We had THREE FLOORS to spread out! The upstairs is open and spacious with an amazing view out to the lake. It is bright and airy, with PLENTY of places to sleep. There is a bathroom upstairs along with games and books.

The middle floor has the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and bathroom (this place just keeps going!) and a main bathroom. The master bedroom is incredibly cozy with the pine woodwork throughout.

The bottom floor walks out to the lower deck (yes, there are two wrap-around decks!) and has a laundry room, bathroom, tv, couch, and game table (we loved playing air hockey).

It was quiet and spectacular! All three of our kids (5, 8, 13) had endless fun. We enjoyed driving around the area and hiked nearby Claytor Lake State Park which was fantastic.

We visited in the dead of winter and were beyond impressed. I can imagine being here in the summer is amazing!

Cabin at the Cove

The cabin was perfect for our weekend getaway to ring in the new year. Very close to Claytor Lake State Park and tons of other hiking options as well. We cannot wait to come back in the summer to enjoy a day out on the lake.

Perfect Fall Cabin

We enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend overlooking Claytor Lake in this cozy, yet spacious, cabin. It was a great location to stay in to ride the New River Bike Trail out of Draper. Cabin had everything a family would need for a weekend getaway. We also appreciated a local boat delivery service, Mountain 2 Island, that the host recommended. We had a canoe tied up waiting for us upon arrival. Host is very welcoming and thoughtful!

Wonderful cabin retreat!

My husband and I met some family here for a weekend getaway as it was roughly half way from where we both lived. What a great cabin! It has everything you need for a getaway with good sleeping arrangements for families. Kitchen was not lacking anything. The porch and views from both levels were beautiful- we happened to go when the leaves had changed and the views were fantastic. Even though we were rained out over the weekend, there were lots of comfy seats, toys, games, magazines and TVs/DVDs for entertainment .Hosts were very communicative, the cabin was very clean, and they even left us a welcome bottle of wine. Thank you for a great weekend away making lots of memories together.

Relaxing stay

We loved our time at the Cabin at the Cove. The house has everything we needed and the views were amazing. We rented kayaks and were out on the lake every day from the house’s private dock. Trina was helpful and responsive. We already are planning for when we can come back again!

Just what we wanted!

Very nicely appointed property with few exceptions. Probably better for a younger couple/group; steps everywhere, however exactly as stated on VRBO. As mentioned there was no internet but cell phone service was spotty too. Perfect place to forget the world and reconnect with each other!

As advertised

We’ve never had a better experience with our hosts. They were available and accommodating every step of the way. The location, the cottage, and the privacy made for a unique lakeside break.
We highly recommend this property.
